So I went riding at ACH from Big Tujunga to Wrightwood yesterday and I'm thoroughly beat!

Warning: stupid question ahead! :eek:

My stupid question is, all things being equal (including rider, road conditions, weather, etc.), in what order would you place these bikes from fastest to slowest. Everything being equal besides the bikes themselves:

  • '07 Honda 919, full Leo Vince Ti exhaust and PC. Michelin 2TC
  • '08 Honda CBR1000RR, bone stock, BT15 stock tires
  • '09 Ducati 848, Termi full exhaust, ECU, and Ohlins rear, stock Pirellis
  • '08 Ducati Monster S4Rs with Arrow pipes, stock tires
  • '08 Buell Lightning XB12Scg, Jardine slip on and racing ECU, Dunlop Q2
  • '05 RC51, 130hp with Ohlins rear. BT16 front, BT21 rear.
Thanks for your time guys.

Dang...I really suck at riding then... :(

Because it was:
  1. '09 Ducati 848, Termi full exhaust, ECU, and Ohlins rear, stock Pirellis
  2. '08 Buell Lightning XB12Scg, Jardine slip on and racing ECU, Dunlop Q2
  3. '08 Honda CBR1000RR, bone stock, BT15 stock tires
  4. '08 Ducati Monster S4Rs with Arrow pipes, stock tires
  5. '07 Honda 919, full Leo Vince Ti exhaust and PC. Michelin 2TC
  6. '05 RC51, 130hp with Ohlins rear. BT16 front, BT21 rear.
However, everyone has way more experience than I do...and I had a bald sport-touring tire on the rear...what a pathetic excuse.

Thanks again, fellas.

That's the KEY difference. A skilled rider on a Ninja 250 will smoke a noob on a 1000 anything...

A lot depends on the road or course....twisty or straights. The 848 is probably the best of the bunch on a tight twisty road. You should really take them all to the track.

I would rate you as the smartest. Your friends are the ones who will be first to the speed trap.

If you are looking for bragging rights, buy a busa, everyone will know you are the fastest.

But your 1st post says all being equal including the rider???????


As said before a pro on the smallest bike can spank a newb on a big bike anyday that is until they get to a nice long straight then the pro will have to work some magic in the turns:D
